The Burlington Slam Project & HYWire Writing Workshops
April is Slam Finals! Stay Tuned for a list of confirmed competitors. There will not be an open slam in April; as only qualified competitors will be invited, but there will still be an open mic and a featured guest artist, as well as a battle of words to select this year’s National slam team.
Where: Windjammer By The Lake – 5353 Lakeshore Rd., Burlington, ON
We are in the basement downstairs; unfortunately this space is not wheelchair accessible. We apologize and are still looking for options for the future.
3rd Thursday of every month. Sign-up is @ 7:45 pm
The City’s only monthly poetry slam for almost 10 years running! Never the same show twice.
$10 cover, or only $5 if you sign up to be a part of the show. We won’t turn anyone away, if you can’t cover the full $10 this month; let us know at the door. Our cover costs go towards paying for the venue, the feature performer, and awarding prize money for the top three competitors in the poetry slam, as well as saving for the annual team’s travel.
